This is the Renfrew top from Sewaholic Patterns. I used a knit with thin black stripes, which kind of reminds me of sheet music! I’ve made the scoop-neck version with long sleeves (view A), my second version. The bands at the hips and sleeves give the shirt a nice looking finish! I find this pattern to be very practical and comfy.
Designed for pear shapes, but I’m more of a rectangle so I’ve used a 4 at the shoulders, 6 at the bust, 4 at the waist and 0 at the hips. All the seams were serged and I used twill tape at the shoulders to reinforce the seams (I applied it on the back seam so when the seam is pressed the tape is hidden).
